Just reel an Arbogast Jitterbug in and let it wag back and forth with a deep, gurgling rhythm that bass can't ignore. The bigger lunkers often follow the Jitterbug for half a retrieve until they can't resist it anymore and attack. The Jointed Jitterbug's tail packs extra shimmy.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Have Gone Cheaper I love this and the regular jitterbug. They are the best top water lures out there. However, I hate that they went to plastic instead of wood. The lure just feels cheaper now. I wish they didn't make cost cutting decisions like this. I would rather pay extra for the better product. Still the best twilight lure on the market. August 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by a classic bait. I love fishing this topwater, the Bass come up and slam it'. I didn't give it 5 stars because the original hooks are terrible. I change them to a shorter shank for better hookups that the fish have a harder time throwing. August 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what they used to be This has nothing to do with BPS, but the Arbogast Jitterbugs used to be bulletproof and sturdy. While they still remain my lure of choice for night time fishing, they are made so cheaply now I think I'm going to make my own. Its sad how flimsy they are. They used to be solid wood and hand crafted...now just cheap plastic. July 17, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Worth a try This cousin to the non-jointed bug puts out plenty of action and has the "sit-down" in the water feature unlike the single section bait. The flexible hook hangers help keep bass buttoned better, too, but somehow I find I get more strikes on the original. April 2, 2014

A: 
The hooks are attached using tiny screws. I've replaced the strap with an eye screw and split ring before. It worked well until a giant pickerel destroyed the bait.

A: 
Use an eyeglass screw driver and take the rear screw out. Gently pull down the lip, slide the existing hooks over the lip and replace with those of your choice. Replace the screw, do not over tighten, keep it snug. Your ready to go.

A: 
You can cut them off with diagonal cutting pliers and put a split ring on the hook hanger before adding the hook. Or remove one both of the screws holding the hook hanger. I'd put super glue in the screw holes before driving the screws back in.

Or get rid of the hangers and add screw eyes and split rings.

For the rear hook on the Jointed model, I'd cut it off and attach a split ring for the new hook.

A: 
I always replace the hooks before I fish this bait. I use a bench grinder to remove the front hook and then replace the hook with a small split ring. I do the same on the back as well.

A: 
well it depends which one you want to replace. one of my hooks got beaten up after getting soo much action. anyways, the back one where the joint is, the ring holding the hook can be bent with pliars. if its the one on the bottom, you need to unscrew the little plate holding the hook on. i put nice trebble hooks on which made me set the hook faster, easier, and he will not get away
